Sargent seat?

I am looking to buy a new seat for my KLR and I am leaning toward a Sargent. Does anybody have one or had any experience with Sargent? I had a Corbin on my 96 Nighthawk 750 and was not impressed in the least, even after the break-in period it was horrible, so Corbin is definitely out the question.

I'm an official Corbin hater, so my answer's a bit off, but the Sargent stuff is top quality!! Excellent comfort and you can customize it nicely to whatever you want..
And, unlike Corbin, they'll stand behind it..

I have a friend who rides a ton of mile on his BMW and the Sargent was his choice.

Thanks for the input. I'm glad to know I'm not the only corbin hater here. Aside from weighing 100lbs. the corbin hardly fit, it took two people to put it on not to mention it was like sitting on concrete. I saw that Sargent is now producing seats for the KLR and thought I could be the guinea pig to test it for the forum. I will let you know how it is in a few weeks.

Sargent seats are right about 10 miles from my house. Very quality materials and workmanship.

Not yet. I lost my oil plug on the highway a month ago and I need to do some engine work. As soon as she's done I plan on getting my seat. I will keep you posted.

I have a Sargent "low" model, ordered it the first day they were orderable.

I couldn't be happier with it, it is way more comfortable than the Corbin dished and dual platforms I had on the bike before.
